Fashion trends for autumn and winter

Shops traditionally start to take delivery of the new autumn/winter 2013 trends now – but they’re hedging their bets with more transitional pieces, using lighter materials and layers. They’re also increasing the number of ‘drops’ of new pieces per season. While we often aspire to steal inspiration from the runways, it can be hard/borderline impossible to find trends we can actually wear in our everyday lives. From affordable beanies to figure-flattering slouchy pants, here are 10 runway trends you’ll feel comfortable buying and wearing all throughout the seasons. White as Proenza Snow Proving that white after Labor Day is, in fact, the way to go,...

Finding a good tailor in Hoi An

Hoi An is home to possibly the world’s highest concentration of tailors per capita, who will stop at nothing to get you to buy clothing you think you need.   Having clothes custom made for you can be highly tempting; I certainly wanted to give it a shot. I met travellers who visited Hoi An specifically to have a new wardrobe outfitted, or to buy formal wear for an entire wedding party. The bespoke tailoring offered is certainly cheaper than many places elsewhere in the world, and this fact alone is not missed by the tailors who, measuring tape in hand, descend on you.

The ancient town of Hoi An

Hoi an is a charming little riverside town famed for its beautiful old buildings, its narrow, quiet streets and its history as a merchant trading post.

Sewing with tailor’s Hoi An

Hoi An is jam packed with tailors on every corner trying to get a piece of the action. Made to measure and in about 48 hours, you can choose from the tailor’s catalogue or bring in your own magazine clipping (better still, the real thing). They can whip up a traditional ao doi, summer dresses, winter coats, wedding dresses and three piece suits. Well tailored items take time. So if you can spend more than 48 hours in Hoi An, you will get a better chance of receiving good quality as you will have more time for fittings and alterations. Good quality tailors in Hoi An with quality fabrics cost more, as do tight deadlines. It helps to know your fabrics and the little...
